Reaching the world from the middle of Michigan!
"I am convinced that I will only fully live as I fully do what He has called me to do. It is in this position that I am fulfilled, refreshed, and inspired. I live to draw others into this experience, to provoke them into the Grace Works for their lives. Together, we shall see Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven." - Jodie Stehouwer
About Mission Matters.....
Mission Matters is the international initiative of Reach Ministries International. Teams of both students and adults are invited to the foreign field to experience the God of the nations. It is through acts of love and compassion that we change the lives of those around us both here and globally. Once we set our hearts to give generously to others living in desperate circumstances, we are forever changed, it is then that we see and understand God's Grace.
Through Mission Matters we extend acts of grace to every woman, man, and child who will receive this gift.
"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
The very pulse of Mission Matters is to activate people into stepping out of their comfort zone and into the nations on short term mission trip. The experience that team members are given is rich, authentic and hard core ministry.
As God opens the doors, Reach endeavors to walk through with a team ready to reach the nations. Short term trips are catered around the skill sets that team members possess. Below is a list of missions we have done in the past:
